Installing iPhone 3G Dock Connector 




Step 1 - Dock Connector 



• Remove the two Phillips #00 screws from the dock- 
connector end of the iPhone. 




Step 2 

• Remove the metal handle from the suction cup. It's 
easier and safer to grip the suction cup's base instead 
of the metal handle. 



• Be very careful when opening the iPhone so 
that the cables under the display are not 
severed. 

• There is a rubber gasket between the silver 
front bezel and black display assembly. A bit 
offeree is required in this step to separate 
the iPhone's display assembly. 

• Use a small suction cup near the Home button to gently 
pull up the bottom portion of the iPhone's display 
assembly. 

• If the display assembly is to damaged to 



allow the suction cup to adhere, tape with a 
strong adhesive such as duct tape maybe 
used. 




Step 3 

• The display assembly is still connected to 
the iPhone by several cables, so don't try to 
remove it entirely just yet.

• Rotate the display assembly up until it is at an angle of 
approximately 45 degrees. 

• Be careful. Sometimes cable 4 can stick to 
the back of the display assembly and can be 
pulled off and/or torn as you remove the 
display assembly.

Step 4 

• Continue to hold the display assembly with one hand, 
and use your other hand and a spudger to disconnect 
the black ribbon cable labeled "1."

the remaining ribbon cable in place. The white tab will 
rotate up 90 degrees, releasing the ribbon cable. 

• Slide the black ribbon cable out of its connector, and 
remove the display assembly from the iPhone.

step 12 

• Remove the following 8 screws: 

• Five 2.3 mm Phillips #00 screws with partial 
threads securing the logic board to the rear panel. 

• Two 2.3 mm Phillips #00 screws with full threads 
securing the logic board and camera. 

One 2.9 mm Phillips #00 screw from beneath the 
"Do not remove" sticker. 




Step 13 

• Use a spudger to gently remove the camera retaining 
clip, (formerly secured by the removed screw) and 
gently pry the camera up and out of its housing in the 
rear panel. The camera cannot be removed entirely yet 
because it's connected to the bottom of the logic board. 




Step 14 



• Use a spudger to gently pry up the end of the logic 
board closest to the dock connector. 



• If the board won't lift up, double check to 
make sure all the screws securing the logic 
board have been removed.
